1999 Stickball Classic New Jersey competition
(JERSEY CITY, 8/28/1999) Five teams came to play here, a couple from across the
river. The finals saw the hometown Jersey City Saints battle it out with the
Bronx Knights, a veteran NY team. The Knights came away with the victory
defeating the Saints 9-2.
In the longball competition, David Meerow was the winner with a monster 350
foot shot. This is the longest drive hit to date in the 1999 longball
